Finn Jensen Norway silver gilt and green enamel lily pad Pin Brooch

on Feb 17, 2019 in Pins/brooches, US/European

I love Scandinavian design and especially the amazing jewelry that came out of that part of Europe so if you combine that with my weakness for any kind of enamel work, it is understandable that I am thrilled to be presenting here a gorgeous pin by Finn Jensen of Norway. In the shape of a lily pad the pin is wrought in gilded sterling and boasts the most translucent, glistening, perfect green enamel. There is something magical about this brooch as if it has the ability to transport you in the deep, luscious forests of an old fairy tale…

 

Size/Weight: 2 1/8″ long by 1 1/2″ tall; 14.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date: marked with Finn Jensen’s logo as well as “NORWAY STERLING” and “925S”; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage with flawless, shimmering enamel in one of the most amazing greens I have seen, a warmly mellowed gilding that is more obvious on the back of the piece and almost intact, very good size and no damage or repairs noted

 

Offered at 95.00
